    Hi, my iPod was eaten by my dog... Seriously.

    Not completely thankfully, he just picked it up and dragged it around a field for a bit, the case it was in got completely destroyed but that doesn't matter too much, the iPod itself still works fine, just that the silver back is very dented and from the front you can see that the silver contour around the screen is bent out of shape and there's about a 5mm gap at one point, basically it looks pretty ugly...
    My iPod is still well in warranty, do you think I can ask Apple for a new one?
    Has anyone ever had a similar problem?

    No, the included warranty does not include accidental damage.

    Thanks very much. However we're not all made of money, I think I'll try my chances with a warranty claim

    Would lying and saying that the home button wasn't working get them to send a new one? After all I doubt they check each iPod before sending a new one out...
